    Looks great!
    What stands are those speakers on? I plan to make a pair myself as a little DIY project.

    Also, give us some specs!

    Thanks skipperr!
    The stands I bought at good will for $8, they're about 12in tall with a slightly tilt.

    The amp. PP kt120 with lundahl IT phase splitter, the amp was built using salvage PTX & chokes from a pair of organ amps. B+@ around 550v cathode bias @ 75ma per tubes, this was my first attempt at building a PP. I must say they sound as they look, "no compromise" especially with the Yamaha.

    The 300b.
    Drd 300b, really nice sounding amps, works surprisingly well with the Yamaha I didn't think the Yamaha have enough efficiency for them but they do, they can push the yam to ears bleeding loud before clipping.

    The turntable
    B&O I got for cheap to spin some vinyls but nothing special, one of these day I have to invest in a more decent TT.

    CDP, Preamps,
    Nad cdp, Chinese tube DAC , Chinese phone pre.

    Cave
    Always wanted a man cave so about two years ago I bought a 2 bedroom condo with a finish basement:banana:

    Very symmetric, I like that.

    can you show us the rest of your man cave? the listening spot, your discs collection maybe.
